What is your favorite book by Ayn Rand and why?

Hmmm . . . . I'm going to have to at least break this down by fiction and non-fiction. Fiction: Atlas Shrugged. The sheer scope of the book is almost overwhelming. Reading it for the first time is an unforgettable experience. Non-Fiction: The Virtue of Selfishness. In very practical terms, Rand points the way to a principled, fulfilling life.

How did you first learn about Ayn Rand and Objectivism?

When I was 15, my Mom gave me a copy of The Fountainhead.

Introduction

Sometime during my early 20s, I began thinking of myself as an Objectivist. I've spent the last 28 years or so working on having a better understanding of this rich, nuanced philosophy.
